“As both a Grammy-winning recording artist and an accomplished actor, LL Cool J’s wide range of talent, dynamic personality and charismatic energy make him the perfect choice to host the Grammy Awards,” Recording Academy president and CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement.
He added, “his unique expertise allows him to set the right tone for the show and connect with everyone — from his musical peers to fans at home. We are honored to have him back.”
Even after hosting the awards so many times, LL is still pretty excited about having the opportunity to host again. Music’s biggest night airs on Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015 at L.A.’s Staples Center on CBS.
“I’m thrilled to again be part of music’s biggest night,” he said. “The performances and moments you see on the Grammy stage are nothing less than amazing throughout the years and this year’s show is shaping up to be one you will never forget.”
